A New York Times columnist proposed one idea so insane that even leftists dunked on him



The so-called “moderate” Democrats have moved wildly to the Left.

Legacy institutions like The New York Times are almost indistinguishable from far-left online blogs.

And a Times columnist proposed one idea so insane that even liberals dunked on him.

New York Times economist Paul Krugman has made his living over the past few decades being a shill for the Democratic establishment.

Krugman has discarded all of his economic principles – even by Keynesian standards – in order to back up all of the Democrats’ unsound fiscal policies.

And Krugman veered off into Crazytown when he dusted off an old idea of his to circumvent the debt ceiling by suggesting the U.S. Treasury simply mint a $1 trillion platinum coin and draw interest off of it to pay debt.

Newsbusters reports:

New York Times economist Paul Krugman is rehashing a batty idea that former Daily Show host and comedian Jon Stewart mocked him for over eight years ago.

In a new blog headlined “Wonking Out: Biden Should Ignore the Debt Limit and Mint a $1 Trillion Coin,” Krugman dusted off an old neo-Keynesian idea of his that he peddled in 2013. He suggested Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen “mint a platinum coin with a face value of $1 trillion — no, it needn’t include $1 trillion worth of platinum — deposit it at the Federal Reserve and draw on that account to keep paying the government’s bills without borrowing.”

The idea was so bad, Stewart said in 2013, “[I]f we’re gonna just make sh*t up,” why not a “$20 trillion coin?”

Krugman’s proposal is the definition of Clownworld economics.

Newsbusters added:

“Here’s the problem, not only has the idea been condemned as ridiculous, it also may not be legal. Florida Atlantic University Associate Professor of Economics William Luther noted Sept. 28 that “[t]he Treasury is authorized to mint platinum bullion and proof coins. It is *not* authorized to mint a platinum *token* coin. And that, it turns out, is an important distinction.”

A $1 trillion platinum bullion coin would in fact require $1 trillion worth of platinum, according to Luther, which is exactly what Krugman said was unnecessary.

The Democrats aren’t even attempting to offer a logical explanation for their Big Government schemes.

Biden said the cost of his $3.5 trillion spending package would be “zero.”

Biden magically figured out the hyperinflation problem that has wrecked so many economies.

Krugman somehow won a Nobel Prize for his work in economics, but now he is the lead economist of Clownworld.

A TV host confessed to editing her interview with Ruth Bader Ginsburg for a jaw-dropping reason



Leftists like to claim that the corporate-controlled press is unbiased.

But many centrists are beginning to experience the bias that conservatives have witnessed for decades.

Now a TV host confessed to editing her interview with Ruth Bader Ginsburg for a jaw-dropping reason.

Former Today show host Katie Couric is airing dirty laundry in her memoir Going There, which includes explosive revelations.

In the book, Couric admits that she edited an interview with the late Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg to save her from public ridicule.

In the interview, Ginsburg expressed her intense displeasure with former NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick and other professional athletes who kneeled as part of the anti-American national anthem protests that swept across the country.

The Daily Mail reports:

“The former Today show host reveals in her new book that she let her personal political views influence her editing decisions after her interview with the late Supreme Court justice in 2016 . . . Couric writes in her memoir that she thought the justice, who was 83 at the time, was ‘elderly and probably didn’t fully understand the question.’”

This is the type of bias that goes into every single editorial decision in every single corporate-controlled press outlet.

Couric inadvertently pulled back the curtain on media bias.

The Daily Mail added:

“[S]he faced a ‘conundrum’ when Ginsburg made comments about Colin Kaepernick . . . The day after the sit-down, the head of public affairs for the Supreme Court emailed Couric to say the late justice had ‘misspoken’ and asked that it be removed from the story . . . Couric called a friend, David Brooks, a New York Times journalist, who advised her that Ginsburg probably didn’t understand the question, even though she was still serving on the Supreme Court at the time.”

Brooks, the “conservative” at The New York Times, is part of the media establishment that protests entrenched power.

“The Notorious RBG” must remain a venerated figure, so the comments she expressed must be excised from the story.

And the weak justification is that she “didn’t understand the question,” but her lucid response suggests otherwise.

And if she didn’t understand such a straight-forward question, her competency on the high court should’ve been up for discussion.

The Daily Mail continued:

Ginsburg went on to say that such protests show a ‘contempt for a government that has made it possible for their parents and grandparents to live a decent life.’

She said: ‘Which they probably could not have lived in the places they came from…as they became older they realize that this was youthful folly. And that’s why education is important’…

According to Couric, she ‘wanted to protect’ Ginsburg and felt that the issue of racial justice was a ‘blind spot’ for her.

If there was any doubt as to whether or not Ginsburg understood the question, she elaborated:

“Would I arrest them for doing it? No . . . I think it’s dumb and disrespectful. I would have the same answer if you asked me about flag burning. I think it’s a terrible thing to do, but I wouldn’t lock a person up for doing it. I would point out how ridiculous it seems to me to do such an act . . . If [athletes] want to be stupid, there’s no law that should be preventive . . . If they want to be arrogant, there’s no law that prevents them from that. What I would do is strongly take issue with the point of view that they are expressing when they do that.”

Couric and other corporate-controlled press figures will agonize and hem and haw and rationalize and go out of their way to protect the Left.

Couric just laid it out in striking detail.

Brian Williams has completely lost his mind after making this insane claim about Joe Biden



Brian Williams’ life has fallen apart since he lost his NBC Nightly News position.

He has gone through meltdown after meltdown.

And Brian Williams has completely lost his mind after making this insane claim about Joe Biden.

Few in the Fake News Media have been as thoroughly disgraced as Brian Williams.

It all started when he lied about coming under RPG rocket fire while flying over Iraq in a helicopter.

Of course, that was all a lie, and it didn’t take long for it to be thoroughly exposed.

He went from being one of the top names in news, as anchor of NBC Nightly News, to being given one of the least-watched timeslots on MSNBC to host a show that barely anybody watches.

And in his new position, he has continued his habit of lying repeatedly.

His lies have only become more insane, especially in recent months in response to Joe Biden’s many failures.

Biden has found himself in constant scandal, all caused by his incompetence.

From his Afghanistan withdrawal debacle, to skyrocketing inflation, to the supply chain nightmare, Biden is failing in ways even his loudest critics didn’t think possible.

But, according to Brian Williams, Biden is doing just fine, and anybody who thinks otherwise is being duped by the “mainstream news media,” who he claims is biased against Biden.

“How much should Biden, then the people around him, be worried about these polling numbers and here`s a free shot,” Williams stated. “How much of it is the result of really crappy reporting by mainstream news media using kind of false equivalence standards that stopped in 1978, and is as if Donald Trump was never President?”

This one quote truly reveals just how disgraceful left-wing corporate-controlled media reporters like Brian Williams are.

He states that the corporate-controlled media should give Biden a free pass on his wrongdoings because Donald Trump was President before him.

This clearly proves his bias.

And it proves President Trump right when he attacked Williams, referring to him as “Lyin’ Brian Williams” in a Tweet where he states that he “is dumber than hell.”

At the end of the day, Williams almost certainly knows that he’s lying.

But he has been relegated to an 11th hour slot at MSNBC.

If he doesn’t play ball, he knows he can be easily dropped.

Fox News just obliterated this fake news reporter over a scheme to cover for Hunter Biden



The Fake News Media did everything in their power to cover for Hunter Biden.

Few are willing to call it out.

But Fox News just obliterated this fake news reporter over a scheme to cover for Hunter Biden.

When thinking of fake news, one generally thinks of left-wing outlets like CNN and MSNBC.

These are all-out left-wing rags, and they are easy to spot.

But there are many other fake news outlets that are harder to spot, like The Dispatch.

Founded by a group of Never-Trump “Republicans” following the fall of The Weekly Standard, it purports to be center-right, while at the same time pushing left-wing propaganda when it suits their Never-Trump agenda.

The Dispatch is also one of a select group of media outlets that is a part of Facebook’s “fact-checking program.”

They have the ability to suppress stories they deem to be false by placing warning labels on them.

This practice is almost always used by fake news outlets to suppress stories they disagree with.

Most infamously, it has been used to cover up Joe Biden’s many scandals, including the Hunter Biden laptop story.

The Dispatch made clear they were on the side of Joe Biden when they refused to put out a serious response to those fact checks.

This is despite the fact that they acknowledged at the time that the laptop was genuine.

Fox News’ Brit Hume questioned The Dispatch’s CEO Stephen Hayes about this, and naturally Hayes gives excuses.

“Steve, what did you all do — what did your fact-checkers at The Dispatch have to say about the Hunter Biden story?” Hume asked.

“Yeah, we didn’t do a straight-up fact-check on the Hunter Biden story in part because there wasn’t enough information in those early days to do a definitive fact check,” Hayes explained. “That’s part of the role of fact-checkers — determining what’s factual so that you are correcting facts rather than trying to correct opinion.”

In reality, they were almost certainly too afraid to talk about the issue.

Big Tech platforms were censoring those who discussed Hunter Biden’s laptop, using the lies from “fact checkers” to justify it.

Or perhaps The Dispatch simply knew that the story would hurt Joe Biden, therefore deciding not to talk about it.

They clearly hate Donald Trump, with the entire staff of the outlet being leading Never-Trumpers.
